2019 Poetry Challenge - Week Twenty

Instagram Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 20 words Instagram Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 20 PoemWeek 20 words from @twigtotable: pathos, verdantly, disbelief, tendrils, flick.


tendrils of disbelief flick

against the surety of change

and optimism of hope

verdantly carpeting pathos



Here are the words and my poem for the twentieth week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.

When I write these poems I usually put the words in the order they've been given to me. This time, I mixed it up a little. It's good to try different things sometimes, Shake it up, keep it fresh.

If you want to join the 2019 Poetry Challenge, head on over to my Instagram account (@indraniperera) where I post the words for the week on Mondays (mostly) in my story. Write a poem and post it. Be sure to tag me and use the hashtags #2019poetrychallenge and #livepoetsclub. 

If you don't want to write a poem, you can still be part of the 2019 Poetry Challenge. Send me five random words and I'll use them in a poem. Either DM me on Instagram with the words or send me an email (indrani at indraniperera dot com).

Happy writing!
